Mauro Molino Barolo Gallinotto DOCG, 2015


Category: Italy, PIEMONTE, Mauro Molino – Barolo, 2015

Established in 1953, the Azienda Agricola Molino is located near the ancient abbey of S. Martino di Marcenasco, in the heart of Barolo and includes Vigna Conca, one of the most famous crus of Langhe. Mauro started running the estate in 1978 and today owns 11 ha of vineyards situated in La Morra, Barolo and Montforte.

Galinotto is the Molino family’s Barolo. A real recovered treasure. This vineyard is in fact located inside the MGA (additional geographical cru) of Berri, a long underestimated area that, thanks to the Molino family, has regained its past splendour.

An extraordinary Barolo

Tasting Note

A wine with a fascinating and intriguing bouquet, with hints of dark berries and eucalyptus. Persistent and full-bodied with a citrus aftertaste.

James Suckling Tasting Note

Very, very perfumed with dark berries, vanilla and dried flowers. Full-bodied, round and juicy with a rich and flavorful finish. Lots going on. Needs three or four years to soften. Try in 2022. 93 Points, January 2019

Wine Advocate Tasting Note

This wine is named after a vineyard site that is privately registered to the Mauro Molino estate. The 2015 Barolo Gallinotto opens to volume and power with a subtle touch of sweet cherry fruit and baking spice (from the oak aging in both botte grande and barrique). Pretty aromas of tilled earth appear at the back. The wine already shows a careful balancing act between its primary fruit and those secondary notes that come from the extended winemaking process, but this wine still needs time to integrate fully. 93 Points. Monica Larner, June 2019

Jancis Robinson.com Tasting Note

Just mid ruby with orange tinges. Intense and deep, minerally nose of cherry and notes of dark earth. Fantastic firm tannins supporting the cherry fruit. Youthful, compact, long and finely balanced. 14.5%. Drink 2019-2030. 17+ Points, Walter Speller. November 2018

Food Pairing

Perfect partner to Italian food, ragú with pasta, wild mushroom risotto,  truffles. Great with Italian cheeses.
